Palace played their home games at the Cup Final venue until 1915 when they were forced to leave due to the First World War. In 1924, the club moved to their current home at Selhurst Park.
Many legends have worn the Crystal Palace shirt, such as; Jim Cannon, Mark Bright, Ian Wright, John Jackson, Nethanial Clyne and Wilfred Zaha.
DID YOU KNOW?:
Palace have been the sole tenants of Selhurst Park since 2003, when Wimbledon – who they were ground sharing with – relocated to Milton Keynes. They had been sharing the ground with the Dons since 1991.
Geographically it may come as a surprise, but Palace’s most heated rivalry is with Championship side Brighton and Hove Albion, the origins of which can be traced back to the 1940s.
